Security Adviser will be designed to work in two ways, a one time scan and in a monitoring mode.
- Security Adviser is being designed to enable an administrator to scan from a laptop. Nothing besides Python 2.3 and any external programs that are called within scans will be required. In particular no SQL database needs to be installed on the laptop.
- Monitoring mode is designed for ongoing security auditing within a network. This method is where there would be one or more appliances and agents on the network checking hosts periodically. Information from this scan may be dumped directly into a SQL database.
